FTH1 Protein Description
FTH1(ferritin, heavy polypeptide 1) is the heavy subunit of ferritin. Ferritin is a ubiquitous intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. The protein is produced by almost all living organisms, including algae, bacteria and higher plants, and animals. In humans, it acts as a buffer against iron deficiency and iron overload. The amount of ferritin stored reflects the amount of iron stored. Variation in ferritin subunit composition may affect the rates of iron uptake and release in different tissues. A major function of ferritin is the storage of iron in a soluble and nontoxic state. Deficiency of ferritin proteins is associated with several neurodegenerative diseases. FTH1 stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. It is important for iron homeostasis. It has ferroxidase activity. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation. It also plays a role in delivery of iron to cells and mediates iron uptake in capsule cells of the developing kidney.
